Hundreds of yielding date palm trees in a farm in Saganahalli near Gauribidanur stand testimony to the innovative efforts of Diwakara Chennappa, a postgraduate from Begur village in Bengaluru Rural district. Interestingly, Diwakara had not considered farming as a livelihood option until he stumbled upon the book One Straw Revolution authored by organic farming pioneer Masanobu Fukuoka.
